tv Right This Minute KICU June 7, 2012 3:00pm-3:30pm PDT
i'm beth troutman. welcome to "right this minute." we put videos first. let's get started. a person hanging from a helicopter suddenly plunges into the water. and then, it happens again. >> you even see the helicopter go almost to the top of the tree level. >> they rescuing somebody off this boat? >> nope. just a crazy stunt for fun or it was until the feds busted them. >> when armed robbers take over a store, a father and his child are confronted by one gunman. >> and watch what he does. >> oh, my gosh. >> what the terrified dad did to save his kid. some street thugs try to rob a woman. >> look who comes to save the day. >> see how spiderman landed a few flying kicks and then got the girl too. >> i was like oh, okay. >> mama is home after a
six-month deployment but her baby beagle is a little confused at first. >> and then she starts realizing it's amanda, it's amanda. i want you to take look at this cell phone footage we got and tell me what you think is happening. >> this took place in cookville, tennessee, on dale hallow lake. >> somebody dangling it. >> are they rescuing somebody off these boats? >> that's what the bystanders who shot the video thought was happening. >> they're doing this for fun. >> that's exactly right. this happens over and over again. this helicopter moves inches away from a boat filled with possibly a dozen people, they're grabbing hold of the skid rail. the helicopter will move up in the air and the person drops into the lake below. you even see the helicopter go almost to the top of the tree level before the person falls what reports are saying is an estimated 50 feet. >> fun, but i doubt it's legal. >> it's not legal and, in fact,
this video has launched an investigation by two different agencies, the faa and the corps of engineers and a spokesperson for the corpses a nashville district says using aircraft so close to one of their lakes without permission violates federal law. the pilot could face a $5,000 fine and six months in jail. wtbs spoke to some of the eyewitnesses. >> if one of those blades hit something or, you know, he takes a nose dive into that water, every person on that boat and all the surrounding boats are in danger. >> luckily there were no reports of injuries but that doesn't mean it wasn't dangerous. >> is that a regular-sized helicopter. >> it's a smaller robinson r 44 or r 22, a two person or four person helicopter, gas powered, not jet engine. that's a gibson r 44 robinson gibson 44. couple of dallas dirt bags appear to have no regard for a young child's life. check out this surveillance video from a mobile phone store
obtained by wfaa. two robbers walked into the store with guns in their hands. one of the alleged robbers used his gun to threaten employee jasmine. >> he pulled out his gun and he pushed the chair where i was sitting down and put the gun close to me and asked for the money. >> one of the robbers walks up to his father who is holding his 4-year-old daughter and watch what he does. >> he points the guns at the father's head and down at this young girl's head. >> we were scared. at that moment i thought he was going to do something to her or to any of us, but more than anything, i was afraid we couldn't do nothing. >> the father in the video here pretty much paralyzed with fear when he saw the gun, he immediately opens up his wallet and hands it to the robber. the robbers got away with cell phones and undisclosed amount of cash. >> human garbage flat out to point a gun at a 4-year-old child beyond the fact that you're robbing a store, that's despicable. >> please tell me they got these
guys or they're close. >> police have not found these guys yet and that's why we're seeing this video. the police have released the video in hopes somebody will recognize these guys and they can apprehend them quickly. as we're g,regard for human lif >> i'm glad the robber wasn't smart enough to wear a mask because, obviously, we can see what he looks like. >> if they're not going to care to point a gun at a child's head they're not going to care if their face is on camera. that's the mentality going on in this video. we've all had very frustrating moments with the parking attendant sometimes, but in the end you pay, you move on. in this south florida mall this driver in this black ford f-150 pulls up to the parking attendant booth. there seems to be some sort of verbal confrontation. the driver jumps out of his car -- >> oh! >> and you see some sort of physical confrontation here. what's happening is that the driver 20-year-old juan
rodriguez, stabbed the parking attendant in the chest and in the arm. >> he stabbed him over a parking fee? >> how much are we talking here? i mean like a couple bucks. >> we're talking three, four bucks maybe. >> what is wrong with this guy, man. wow. >> we don't know what the exchange of words was, but he was taken to a hospital and is recovering. rodriguez is still at large and police are looking for him. they know who he is. they need people to -- >> turn him in. >> after the stabbing you see the driver hang out for a little bit and then he just rams on the gas, slams through the gate, and just takes off. >> it's just amazing what people will do the crimes people will commit for what, five, six dollars. this guy can go to jail for years over this. >> it's not about the money in this situation. it's about him probably trying to prove something, be tough. >> how manly can he possibly be if he can't even pay a parking fee? this next one is guaranteed
to put a smile on your face because it's another video from the welcome home blog. >> oh. where are the tissues. >> we love these here on "right this minute." it's a little bit different because doing the welcoming is daisy, a beagle. who's coming home? u.s. airman amanda, on a six-month deployment. this video is from her husband. >> hi, daisy. hi. hi. >> oh! oh! >> she's like, i'm going to smother you. >> it's funny because at first she kind of -- i thought she thought it was anybody coming in to say hi and then she starts realizing it's amanda, as amanda. >> i know that smell. >> and she is going nuts. >> hi. hi.
>> her husband who sent this video to the welcome home blog said that daisy was a puppy when amanda left but is sort of full grown now but, of course, she remembers amanda. >> i'm surprised she would have such a tight bond as a puppy and not have that much time to really connect with amanda. that's fascinating. >> she was imprinted on her. >> yeah. she loves her, man. you can tell. >> the dog knows it's mama as soon as that first day, they connect and it's done. >> i bet that must have been a really good feeling for amanda. she probably was expecting some sort of excitement but didn't expect the erratic response. >> i know. i know. this dude here, decided to climb a big mountain for his birthday. >> keep watching him. keep watching. >> keep watching to see him show off his machoness on macho. >> i'm mario.
